By the results of 2017 the company “Gazpromneft- Noyabrsk neftegaz” added more than 20 million tonnes of oil equivalent to the industrial category of reserves.
This figure exceeded the last year’s result on 40 percent and again became one of the best in the exploration and production unit of “Gazprom Neft”. Increase in the company’s reserves traditionally significantly exceeds current production rates; it guarantees the stable production amount for the coming decades.
Increase in resource base, first of all, is provided due to revaluation of remaining reserves in “mature” extractive fields and also through exploitation drilling, as the board of corporate communications of the company “Gazpromneft- Noyabrsk neftegaz” informs. It is also worth noting that last year, according to the results of exploration, geological reserves were confirmed, and increase in extractable reserves was provided on 2 million and 700 thousand tonnes of oil equivalent on the northern cluster of the project of the Remote Fields Group in the West Chatylkinskoye license area.
According to Alexander Shushakov, the director general of “Gazpromneft – Noyabrsk neftegaz”, modern methods of geological prospecting and intensification of hydrocarbon extraction allow defining prospects of “mature” fields in the south of Yamal in a new way. Deposits, which were considered unprofitable 15-20 years ago, are now effectively developed due to consistent reduction of operating costs in exploitation drilling and technologies of development of wells.
Groups A (drilled), + B1 (prepared) and + C1 (explored) are classified as industrial oil and gas reserves in accordance with the current Russian system.
